Day 96

Saturday, March 03, 2012

Wow! I'm close to 100!

Today a 30 min swim in the endless pool with 1000 backstrokes and various kicks holding onto the kickbar.

Off to work again! It's been crazy there.

Days 94 & 95

Friday, March 02, 2012

Yesterday I did my standard routine: elliptical, weights, crunches and stretching. It was tough to get through, but I did it.

Today I did Zumba for 20 minutes. It felt great! Wish I had more time to do some more, but off to work I go!

  Nice! It is hard to fit in sometimes, but we find time for the things we are passionate about and we are passionate about staying healthy! Way to go! Tina

Day 93 (yesterday), Busy mom (today)

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I thought I'd blog before I exercise today. I never got a chance to blog yesterday. My afternoons and evenings are chaotic. Today will be crazy after school:

After school: Mikey has track, Mary has rehearsal (a bullying movie), Stevie has basketball
4:00- Drive Patrick to piano
4:50-Pick up Mary and take her to piano
5:00-Pick up Stevie and drive him to piano, take Patrick home with me from piano, Mikey will walk home
6:00-Patrick and I go to High School orientation, then afterward, eighth grade graduation planning meeting.
6:15- Hope Hubby remembers to pick up Mary and Stevie from piano.

Sometime in there we have to eat dinner. Luckily I have leftovers. I have to type up this list for my own reference. I hope I remember everything and everyone. It looks like I'll be dragging the twins with me too. There will be no babysitters home to help.

Yesterday's workout was fun. I did 20 minutes each of elliptical, Zumba, and swimming. I woke up a little sore again, but not as bad as yesterday. Today I plan to do my standard: elliptical, weights, crunches, stretching. We'll see how I feel afterward if I want to get some Zumba done too.

Wish me luck!

    Oh, the joys of being the family "cabbie" - hope everything got accomplished and all kids made it home like they were supposed to. LOL !
Great job on the exercise.

Sounds like a lot of running around. Hope everything goes as smoothly as can be hoped for!

  Sounds familiar, but we thrive in chaos, right? Have a great day!

Day 92

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Fantastic workout today. I started with 60 straight minutes on the elliptical, then did weights, non-crunch abs, and stretching. WooHoo!! I think all the Zumba I did all weekend and Monday really worked my core. I sure could feel it today before I started working out.

I think it's funny I got so many comments yesterday on how positive I am. Yesterday, I was in a really bad mood. I guess I must have been good and didn't spread my bad mood via my blog.

Today I feel much better and more focused. The little problems aren't bothering me so much.

Day 91

Monday, February 27, 2012

Wow! I've officially been working out every day for three months! All weekend I did Zumba on the Xbox Kinect. It was frustrating that we couldn't get the two player game to work. I really wanted to see the kids try Zumba. I did discover how to unlock more levels, but they don't seem to be more dances, just different backgrounds. Today I did a 20 minute Intermediate class and a 45 minute Intermediate class. After that I did some weights too. I've been pretty consistant with the weights this year. I've done weights three times a week, with only one week not reaching that goal (mostly due to a rough TOM).

I'm still plugging along even though it seems like eveything around here is breaking. Our main computer is in the shop. Thankfully, Hubby got the important stuff loaded onto another computer now, so I can at least function. Doing bills is weird now. My desk is upstairs, the computer downstairs. I guess more cardio going back and forth.

One of our vans is in the shop too. I'm car-less today, but hope to have transportation tomorrow. It's not as bad as we thought, but still a chunk of money I was hoping to spend fixing something else.

    Sorry to hear about everything falling apart, except you! Nice positive attitude. Doesn't working out take the frustration away!?

    Love your silver lining on the desk and computer locations. Up and down those stairs is a definite way to add some extra activity.
